November 1st – Fall Roots Wise Cleanse Class: Spring and Fall are the best times to do a cleanse. Our bodies take a beating, both good and bad, every day with what we put into them, how we treat them, what surrounds them in our environment and how we move them. The ugly truth is that we live in a world where we are exposed to more toxins than our bodies are designed to handle. We store heavy metals and other pollutants in our bodies that can be found in the air we breath, the water we drink and even in the objects we choose to surround ourselves with. Not to mention, every time we work out we are creating junk for our body to have to clean up. Cleansing helps our bodies detoxify, recover, replenish and become reinvigorated so we can keep doing the things we love with all the energy we want. Roots Wise has created an effective, energizing, yet easy detoxification program that anyone can follow and feel incredible with! You will be set up with a 10 day program to detox your bodies, prepare for winter, re-energize, get rid of some funky issues and get a new perspective.

November 8th- The Complicated World of Supplements and SuperFoods: There are so many products out there and so many people saying one thing or another. What do you need and what don’t you need? What can you truly benefit from and what is all hype? What protein powder is the best for you? What added nutrients do you need to take your game to the next level or simply enhance overall health? These are some of the things we will cover in this class. So if you want to enhance your athletic performance with added nutrients or work to gain better overall health, this class will provide you with great info to help you to make the right decisions in this area.

5o Day Challenge Starts on September 17th!!

And runs thru Nov 5th.  Research shows it takes 30 days to make or break a habit.  This program gives you plenty of time to make the healthiest habits you can as they relate to nutrition and exercise.  Learn more at 100dayvtchallenge.wordpress.com

Food As Fuel….Performance Nutrition Class

On June 21st from 5:30 pm to 8 pm, I will be teaching a class all about nutrition for the mover and shaker.  It will be held at The Confluence in Berlin, VT…read on….

Do you want to take your athletic conditioning and performance to the next level?  Are you looking to prepare your body nutritionally for that next race or competition but are lost as to how to go about that?  Are you confused with all the information out there telling you what to eat and when to eat it, to get you to that next level?  Are you a die hard crossfitter, a marathoner, or you want to be one, a biker, an obstacle racer, weekend warrior or an everyday mover and shaker looking to gain the most from your workouts, your training and your everyday movement sessions?

Then join us in the FitPark, our outdoor classroom, for a class that will answer those questions & more. Physical activity, athletic performance & recovery from exercise are enhanced by optimal nutrition.  We’ll discuss the foundations & the specifics of athletic & performance nutrition, appropriate selection of foods & fluids, timing of intake & supplement choices for optimal health, exercise performance and recovery.

Some topics that will be covered include:

  • The Protein Low Down
  • Healthy Fats for Fuel
  • How and When to Use Carbs to your Benefit
  • Supplements of all sorts…from protein powders to omegas, to superfoods to MRP’s
  • Alkaline vs Acid
  • The Key Vitamins and Minerals for Optimal Performance
  • Electrolytes and Recovery Foods
  • Pre-race prep, mid race fuel and post race replenishment
  • And we will attempt to debunk some of the myths that abound!
  • You will also leave with a sample of the Roots Wise Recovery Blend

Call or email Megan at 603-674-7249 or megewroot@yahoo.com to pre-register or with any questions.  The cost of the class is $35
